Reading between the lines, artist Long Bin Chen has found new meaning in these old books, constructing intricate sculptures from classic texts. A heads up for students at College of Charleston: if you’re going to bring in your signed copy of Lord of the Rings for some light reading, guard it with your life or it’ll be carved into a pair of lips before you can say You Shall Not Pass.
